I have stayed at more expensive hotels near the beach and they are not NEARLY as nice as the Lemon Tree Inn. It was worth not being right on the beach- to stay here. The property and room were VERY clean and the staff was super polite. They brought me extra pillows to the room and were extremely accommodating. The rooms are well insulated, so you can't hear traffic or other guests. The indoor restaurant is very classy and the food was 5 star, with a full bar. Thanks for the great stay! We will definitely be staying here again.

Very nice hotel, clean, nice amenity and close to beaches and wharf

Accessibility to all things was very good. Great place to stay! Would stay there again!

Very nice hotel and the restaurant is fantastic! Staff helpful, too.

Great front desk personnel so no complaints about the customer service, however the room that we stayed in (Room 133)

It was very clean but the toilet broke and there wasn't a fridge in the room.

The property is a little dated and needs some upgrading- painting etc. No mini fridge in the rooms but can be rented for $10/night I found out when I checked out. Nice pool but not heated much...it was cool outside so the water felt cold. Didn't see a hot tub. The restaurant was very good, had breakfast and dinner there.

Checking in was problematic as they had my reservation under my MIDDLE name. Free morning coffee in the lobby would have been nice, rather than the adjacent restaurant. MINIMAL bathroom amenities/toiletries. NO REFIGERATOR!!! Needed for restaurant leftovers and to store beverages, this is wine country after all.

Beautiful grounds and great restaurant/bar. Clean rooms

It was clean and basic. The property is a bit dated, as well as the rooms and has only few cosmetic upgrades.

Nice hotel. Would have liked a refrigerator in the room like last time we were there. Also the mattress was a little soft.
